Staring The Force Awakens' John Boyega this time around, the movie is the sequel to director Guillermo del Toro's 2013 hit Pacific Rim, which had giant robots fighting giant monsters across the big screen.

Blade Runner 2049 Review Round-up: Critics say its better than the original

Blade Runner 2049 Review Round-up: Critics say its better than the original

This morning the first round of Blade Runner 2049 reviews were released with an almost-purely-positive set of reactions. The difference between the original and the sequel seems to be in the age they each reflect. Like every great and true science fiction movie, Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049 seem to perfectly encapsulate the future of the world we live in here in the present.

Sphero R2-D2 Review : Also the Best Star Wars Toy ever made

Sphero R2-D2 Review : Also the Best Star Wars Toy ever made

When I reviewed BB-8 by Sphero, I didn't expect the company would go back and create an R2-D2, too. They built their name on the original remotely controlled sphere - Sphero - and they'd not yet expanded to the world of Cars and Spider-Men. Since then they've become a much more diversified group of smart-device creators, and it's become time to roll out with the most beloved Star Wars robot in the history of the world: R2-D2 (also now by Sphero).

The best Star Wars toy was just revealed to the world in the form of a secret event inside an event at Target. This event was Force Friday, and the event within was a sort of mini-raffle. Those in attendance were given the treat of a lifetime - a view of the biggest Star Wars plush toy in the history of the world - Porg style.

Toshiba’s Star Wars TV is… interesting

Toshiba’s Star Wars TV is… interesting

Toshiba made a Star Wars television that's 24-inches diagonally and designed with a Star Wars pattern. They've gone above-and-beyond when it comes to hyping this less-than-fantastic design, suggesting that "this model draws viewers into the space odyssey action, submerging them into an X-wing mission every time their eyes meet the TV." Toshiba would certainly have been better served in making the exterior aesthetic of this television set more subtle, focusing instead on the other tiny details that aren't quite so eye-searing.

Star Wars TLJ SPOILER inside: one HUGE Snoke leak

Star Wars TLJ SPOILER inside: one HUGE Snoke leak

Before we go any further, Star Wars fans, I recommend you turn back - this is the sort of leaked set of images that change the movie. This is an image - and a set of images - that make the way you see the film different, especially if you'd planned on going to the theater this December with a completely blank slate idea of what Star Wars: The Last Jedi would be like.

This is Donald Glover as Lando (and Chewie’s wife?!)

This is Donald Glover as Lando (and Chewie’s wife?!)

Today we've gotten a couple looks at what Donald Glover is going to look like in the upcoming Han Solo Star Wars film. While it should be relatively obvious that his appearance won't change drastically - Lando's just a man, after all - we do get to see some sweet costume images. Very, very small images that I feel border on cruelty - thanks Ron Howard! Now, to start making that super-duper-early cosplay jacket in yellow...

All Star Wars Forces of Destiny Episodes on YouTube: watch them here!

This past week the folks responsible for making Star Wars a fun place to be for all people released a series of short episodes. These episodes were called Star Wars Forces of Destiny, and they contained all the most female of heroes in the Star Wars universe. These episodes are very, very short and don't have any mega-massive impact on the Star Wars canon - but they are super fun and quick to watch.

R2-D2 sells for $2.76 million at auction

R2-D2 sells for $2.76 million at auction

Yes, you read that title right. But before you start getting upset that the iconic Star Wars droid should have fetched a much higher price, know that it wasn't the R2-D2. Sold by the Profiles in History auction house in California this week, this model was described as a "complete R2-D2 unit" that was assembled from various original parts. When you put that under consideration, it makes perfect sense why this R2-D2 would sell for a mere $2.76 million in pocket change.

More HD photos of Rey’s Lightsaber (and its true identity)

More HD photos of Rey’s Lightsaber (and its true identity)

Today we present the best look at Rey's Lightsaber we currently have available - up close and personal with a nice set of photos. These images come with a bit of confirmation of information passed down this week by the keeper of the canon for Star Wars: Pablo Hidalgo. Before there's any confusion when the first wave of The Last Jedi toys are released in stores - the name "Rey's Lightsaber" is a simple re-naming of a lightsaber we already know very well.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Trivia: is that a Bothan, or not?

Star Wars The Last Jedi Trivia: is that a Bothan, or not?

The first major photo shoot for Star Wars The Last Jedi brought with it a question of nature of one alien in particular - this horse-faced fellow you see before you. "Many Bothans died to bring us this information," said Mon Mothma, leader of the Rebellion, in Star Wars Return of The Jedi. Since then it's been a never-ending battle to decide what Bothans - the Bothan Spies, that is - were and how they looked. In the most recent discussion on the matter, it's clear: there is no one, single version of a Bothan, but many.
